TWEET OF THE DAY: FABIO JAKOBSEN IS BACK IN THE SADDLE
Fabio Jakobsen is back in the saddle following a horrific crash at the Tour of Poland. As the UCI calendar resumed in August, Jakobsen was sprinting shoulder to shoulder with compatriot Dylan Gronewegen at the end of stage one of the Tour of Poland. Gronewegen drifted into Jakobsen, sending the Deceuninck Quickstep rider into and over the barriers. Gronewegen was relegated and Jakobsen was given the win, however, the 23-year-old was on his way to the hospital for emergency surgery.
Nearly 14 weeks later Jakobsen took his maiden voyage aboard Specialized’s all-new Tarmac SL7. In a recent interview in Flemish broadcaster Sporza Jakobsen said “The recovery is going well. I can start training again in a few weeks.”

Back on the bike together with @delorestougje on our new @iamspecialized Tarmac SL7. It has been quite a journey so far. With this post I would like to thank all the medical specialists that have helped me a long the way. pic.twitter.com/N34S9cf933
